The Diving on Koh Tao

Here’s a look at the diving from 2015 on Koh Tao with Sairee Cottage Diving. Filmed, and edited by yours truly! Enjoy! F***, I love my life.

Koh Tao – Don’t Not Come and The Day We Saved A Turtle

Just wanted to post an update re: current murderous situation on Koh Tao. We are fine. Yes, it was pretty close to us, but considering it happened on the longest, busiest stretch of beach on Koh Tao where the majority of locals, foreign locals, and tourists stay, everything is in close proximity.
